Responsible Avoidance

14 May 2009 | St. Martin
May 14

Successful check-out will result (he said hopefully) in delivery, tomorrow, of new wifi system. Demonstrated better distance and stability expected to close the circle on perfect existence. Well... pretty close. Anybody want a slightly used long-range, marine, internet set-up that supposedly works well with Windows? Cheap?

Have religiously mixed Stabil with outboard gas resulting(?) in perfect operation until last tank at which point engine began idling and starting poorly. Coincidence or a message from God? Have now added appeasement dose. Sufficient to avoid wrath of Poseidon? The future awaits.

*Gravitas alert* Colregs are the maritime regulations for collision avoidance. There are no rights. Stand-on and burdened vessels each have responsibilities and, except in extreme circumstances, both are faulted by contact. The rules do not exist to give anyone power over another, but rather to facilitate felicitous coexistence. The concept translates well into all human interaction. We change the right to be left peaceably alone into a 'right' to virtually anything at someone else's expense at our, and our civilization's, peril. Whoa, dude. Way heavy. Uno mas cerveza, pour favor... oops, wrong country. Pardonez moi, s'il vous plait.

Trip to Philipsburg, Sint Maarten tomorrow? Trip to Anguilla Saturday/Sunday? Vegetate in European paradise until forced to beat feet to Trinidad? Will consider at later time... or possibly after that.
